Would your kid squeal at the idea of digging up dinosaur fossils? How about winning a ribbon for cupcake decorating at a County Fair? Mine can’t wait to build a rocket ship and blast into space to visit her favorite planet.
Camp is a fantastic way for preschool kids to stay active and engaged during the long summer months. Albany Preschool offers a week-by-week summer camp program June 26 to August 18 (Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 1 PM), which is open to non-Albany Preschool children as well. Each week-long program is centered on a fun theme to encourage exploration and interest.
For children who plan to attend APS in the fall, summer camp provides an important opportunity to ease into preschool. The lower-key setting allows them to gain a sense of ownership in the new school environment before the formal school year starts, so they feel at home. And it’s just so much fun!
Here’s what to expect at APS Summer Camp:
Fun and Play: Tie-dye, cook, read books, play games
Music: Sing and play instruments
Outdoor Activities: Water and sand play, swing and bike, pitch tents
Arts and Imagination: Build forts, design rides and rockets, act out fairy tales, dress up, draw and paint
Cooking: Prep treats, and (everyone’s favorite) make ice cream every Friday!
